Hazel Harris from My Crafty Outlook

I'm Hazel, known in the crafting world as Craftyhazelnut. I was thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer for for Crafting by Designs 'anything goes' challenge.

I live in Bromley, part of Greater London in the UK. I'm 66 and am married to John, who fully supports me in my obsession for accumulating (and using) crafting goodies. I've always been interested in crafting in one form or another; when I was younger I did a lot of knitting, embroidery, crocheting etc but over the past thirteen years or so I have been more involved in paper crafting, particularly card making, although I dabble in scrapbooking from time to time. I have my own personal crafting blog: Crafty Hazelnut 

Angeline Choo from Scrappy Scrappy

Hi. I’m Angeline. I’m at IT geek by day and a crafter by night. I started scrapbooking a few years ago by purchasing my first mini album kit from my local scrapbook store. Before that, I had no clue at all about scrapbooking. After that fateful day, it never stopped! I love spending hours in my scrappy room making cards, mini albums, art journals, 3D projects, mixed media projects … anything scrappy, I love!  

Sammy Jean from Sammy Jean

I started crafting in the summer of 2012 and discovered stamping a year later. My main obsessions are LOTV (to my bank manager's dismay I live only 5 miles from their shop) and Tim Holtz and I just adore cute and vintage looks. While I am mainly a cardmaker, I have recently started trying out other papercrafts and altered art, and I'm loving it all!
My husband puts up with it all, and my kids love it, especially my teenage daughter, who has been known to make a card or two herself too.

Hi! I'm Mirella DK, a Spaniard living in Scotland. I've been card-making for about 3 years now, after getting the crafting bug when I started scrapbooking after my daughter was born. It is my passion and it keeps me sane! I like to try different styles, although my favourite by far is shabby chic distressed look. I call it my "messy style", I find it hard to leave an empty space on my cards!
